Jackie White Honored With Lifetime Achievement Award By ECN/IVD

CHINO, Calif.—Jackie White, vice president of California Exotic Novelties, was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award during the ECN/IVD Warehouse Show.

"I couldn't believe the wonderful, kind things Frank Koretsky said,” White said. “I am truly touched. The trophy is beautiful and I am so amazed by this unexpected honor. Thank you very much."

"Everything I said about Jackie is true,” Koretsky said. “She is one of those people who just makes you feel good when she enters a room! I'm a better person for knowing her. She has contributed so much to the novelty industry over the years, we all owe a bit of gratitude for the path she's paved for all of us."

Prior to California Exotic Novelties' founding in 1994, Jackie worked with Susan Colvin at former adult distribution company CPLC. Jackie has been with CalExotics from the beginning, and one could say that her name, along with Susan's, is synonymous with the company. 

"I can't think of anyone more deserving of a lifetime achievement award,” said Susan Colvin, president and CEO of California Exotic Novelties. “I am so thrilled that our dear friends at East Coast News have recognized Jackie White for her dedicated service to California Exotic Novelties and the industry. Jackie is incredibly creative, hardworking, dedicated and personable, and is a tireless driving force at our company. We love you, Jackie!"

Over the years Jackie has helped transform the market into a female-focused and couples-friendly industry. The philosophy she helped create with CalExotics can be measured by the critical shift from male to female consumers. Traveling the globe annually, Jackie has been a regular fixture at trade shows, open houses, conventions, and every conceivable venue where novelties are being talked about, sold or promoted.
